Not a big IPA drinker but this stuff is just delicious. I’ve been fortunate enough to have tried about 6 batches and it never disappoints. However it’s worth noting that it will be a significantly poorer brew within days after the date on the bottle so don’t try to hold onto this one.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Stone Brewing World Bistro and Gardens. As Enjoy By 09.13.13. A clear, dark golden beer with a small off-white head. Lots of peaches and pine cones on the nose, hop pellets. Some generic tropical fruits and malty sweetness. The flavor has the same hop pellet touch, with a faint sweetness, lots of bitterness and some piney, citrusy notes. Dry on the palate, full bodied and pleasantly carbonated. Lasting finish. Wonderfully tasteful, although a bit too much on the hop pellet side. 130817

Belated review of the 4/15. Amazing. One if the best west coast IPAs I've ever had. Had on tap in western MA. Flowery hops dominate just the way I like them to. Strong grapefruit smells and fresh cut grass. Very drinkable. Can't wait until my next run in with Enjoy By.

4.7 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Aroma very floral and earthy.
Full bodied on the palate.
Taste: Massive. All the flavors of a Stone IPA but very pronounced.
Pine and grapefruit with more of a tangerine and melon flavor than other Stone IPA’s
Some heat but in a good way.
Overall this is an extraordinary beer.
